About us

There is no better way to understand our story, without meeting our team leader. This is her story and vision reflected in every aspect of the holiday experience with us:

“My name is Chrissy Pagalou  and as of 2021 I am the owner of Chrissy’s Paradise Hotel in Agia Pelagia. I was born and raised in Heraklion, Crete, where I have been working for the last two decades. I have studied Business Administration, specializing in Marketing. My studies helped me shape my life and my character as a person and entrepreneur. I love people, nature and believe in the power of good, love and hope. My intelligence is more emotional and I dare say that, because of this, I have communication as a gift.

Let’s Meet

My vision for Chrissy’s Paradise Hotel is to be a paradise for the mind and body for its guests, its staff and all those who take part in it.

Everyday to be full of positive emotions, positive energy, interest in fellow human beings and family warmth. Chrissy’s Paradise is a sentimental hotel … that exists, ready to welcome you and host you as only Cretans know.

Κοπιάστε! (the cretan way of welcoming people from the heart)”

I want to thank you very much for a wonderful holiday in this great hotel. We also really enjoyed the holiday thanks to the staff, which is great. I have visited hundreds of hotels around the world, but nowhere have I found such friendly, smiling and helpful staff as here. The girls at the front desk are always smiling and ready to help and meet your every requirement. The pool bar is best served. The staff mix tasty drinks for you and take care of your sunbathing comfort. The food at the hotel was the most delicious I've ever eaten in Europe. I had the feeling that an old Greek grandmother was preparing it with love. I'm sure she was in the kitchen too :). A huge thank you goes to the owner of the hotel, who manages it with love, fulfills all the wishes of the guests and wants them to feel like in paradise and paradise it really was. I can't wait to visit this great place again. With love, Tomáš

The best hotel I have visited in my life !! I went alone but I never felt alone since I felt that I was arriving at a house of lifelong friends. The buffet was very good, varied, with very fresh salads I loved, lots of fruits and ice cream. The atmosphere is very cheerful in the evenings in the very familiar bar with an exquisite taste. Thank you very much Chrissy, Stella Layla and everyone for those days in Paradise and I wish you much success, you deserve it, you love having guests, I hope to return soon.

GREAT HOLIDAY !!! I really enjoyed my stay at this hotel! Starting from the check-in and during the whole stay there is a feeling that you have come to old friends, everyone is so sincerely glad to see you. The owner of the hotel Chrissy and all the staff are helpful in any matter - many thanks to them! The food in the hotel is very good and tasty, a lot of fruits, you will not be hungry. In the evenings, films are shown on the big screen at the bar. Great pool. The beach is about one km away, but it carries a minivan on schedule. I took a car and put it in the parking lot in front of the hotel. And the most important thing! Read FRESH reviews! In old reviews this hotel is not very much and has a different name. The owner has changed and EVERYTHING has changed Thank you very much for a great vacation !!!

The hotel with the kindest heart !!!! The owner of the hotel, Christie, sets the tone. An energetic, kind, charming young woman. One of them selected a team of like-minded people who make sure that vacationers feel taken care of themselves, have nothing to worry about and stay in a friendly atmosphere. Daniela won the heart of my daughter !!! The atmosphere of the hotel is amazing! The hotel is clean, well maintained, and the food is excellent. Delight for ten days !!! An unforgettable stay !!! Recommend for everybody!! I wish you prosperity !!!
